Let’s all inch a little closer to the weekend with an early morning round of pop culture news. The Fault in Our Stars movie poster causes a stir, Blake Lively discusses her Pinterest habits, Ron Burgundy squares off against his biggest foe to date and so much more in today’s edition of celebrity headlines!
Here are the 6 stories you need to read this morning:
1. While fans are excited about the release of the new The Fault in Our Stars movie poster, many people have taken issue with the tagline. The poster of the cinematic adaption of John Green’s novel about two teenagers with cancer who fall in love is accompanied by the tagline “One sick love story.” Green addressed the controversy via Tumblr stating that although he didn’t write the tagline, he actually liked it. “I like the tag line because it says, literally, the sick can also have love stories. Love and joy and romance are not just things reserved for the well. That said, I might be wrong. I’m wrong all the time.” [BuzzFeed]
2. You may have been re-pinned by superstar Blake Lively and not even know it. Lively admitted in an interview that she keeps a Pinterest account (under a different name of course!) which she uses to store boards. The best part? The Gossip Girl star admitted to sometimes re-pinning pictures of husband Ryan Reynolds. Who can blame her? [The Cut]
Next: The new Planet of the Apes trailer, Justin Bieber says he still loves Selena Gomez and more…
3. Are you ready for your first look at the new Planet of the Apes? Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes place ten years after the events in 2011′s Rise of the Planet of the Apes and, seemingly, the humans and genetically evolved apes have been living in relative peace. Something tells us that’s more than likely not going to last. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes starring Keri Russell, Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke opens July 11, 2014. [Wired]
4. It’s Ron Burgundy vs. The Hobbit. Anchorman 2, which formally opened Wednesday, has been projected to gross about $30 million in its opening Friday-Sunday frame, but will that be enough to overtake last week’s number one, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug? I’ll be eagerly anticipating the results from my glass case of emotion. [Hollywood Reporter]
5. Television is about to get the Twitter treatment. Nick Bilton’s book, “Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal,” has been optioned by Lionsgate to be turned into a television series. Executive producer Allison Shearmur was optimistic about the project. “The Social Network was a perfect film, and this series will be different providing a longer view of the work life changes, gamesmanship and personal sacrifices made by a group of individuals who are building a company that will change the way that people communicate.”[Time]
6. Justin Bieber may have split from Selena Gomez earlier this year, but that doesn’t mean he’s stopped caring about her.
“I wrote the best music once my heart was broken,” Justin Bieber said during a radio interview with Power 106. “‘All That Matters’ was written when I was in a great place in my relationship, and at that time, she was all that mattered in my life.” The pop star explained that the public nature of the breakup made things more difficult. “It’s just hard for the both of us,” said Bieber. “But you know, she’s a great woman. I love her till this day.”
